Surviving Calamity – Exhibition Call for Entries / Calls & Submissions

October 9, 2020

Organization Name: Student Art Spaces

Organization Location: Seattle, WA

Type: Calls & Submissions

Fee: Free


“Surviving Calamity” is an upcoming exhibit open to artists ages 13-24 in Washington state. This show invites underrepresented artists to explore and interpret the theme, with a focus on the chaotic year that 2020 has been. We welcome all 2D work, but we prioritize traditional pieces.

Some examples of events your artwork can revolve around are the COVID-19 pandemic, the upcoming election, the Black Lives Matter protests, LGBTQ+ rights rulings during Pride Month, and more. Again, these are just examples – if you have an artwork that touches on something important that happened this year, it fits the theme.


The exhibit will run throughout November 2020 at Cafe Cesura. We ask that all participants be able to drop off their work in person, however we can make requested accommodations. More information on this will be released as we evaluate the severity of the pandemic.

You will have the opportunity to submit up to three pieces in this application. Each piece is a separate form, so please fill in the first page identically each time if you plan on submitting multiple pieces. After the first time you submit, your info will be emailed to you for easy copy-pasting.

This application is due October 9th, 2020.
